HENRYETTA, Okla. — Eleven days after a deadly tornado killed 24 people and destroyed hundreds of homes, Oklahoma City and its suburbs awoke on Saturday morning to the aftermath of round two, after a storm set off tornadoes and severe flooding that caused widespread damage throughout the region Friday and claimed at least five victims.
Lactose intolerants should skip Milwaukee: this is a city where milk and milky treats dominate local palates and menus. And with good reason, according to Theresa Nemetz of Milwaukee Food Tours. "Originally, the farms in Wisconsin focused on wheat production – the German immigrants had originally come to grow that," she explains, "But then there was a famine because insects ruined that crop, and they turned to dairy because it was a much safer product. " The rich, fertile land was a boon for cattle-rearing, too, adds Wisconsinfoodie.com's Arthur Ircink. "The glaciers had come through here, we're on this natural lake, we have this crazy seasonal cycle – all that makes the dairy thrive."
The milk mountain around Milwaukee led to twin local obsessions: cheese and fudgey chocolate. The Germans who settled in Wisconsin's reassuringly familiar terrain revived their old world artisanal churning skills. "Cheese runs through our veins," Ircink adds, "People here would eat cheese curds with milk for breakfast in the morning. In taste tests, some cheesemakers in Wisconsin beat the whole countries of England or France." For many newcomers, it's a shock how pungent and flavor-packed cheese from Milwaukee might be compared with supermarket brands. "Often when we do tours with students, they're so used to Kraft cheese that when you introduce them to an aged cheddar, they don't even like it," Nemetz warns.
Here’s what happened, said Syracuse Police Sgt. Tom Connellan:The two men arranged to meet in the 300 block of Martin Street. After they had sex in the wooded area at the end of the street, the victim said the other man stabbed him at about 12:40 a.m. as he was walking out behind 313 Martin St.
The suspect grabbed the victim from behind and cut his throat with an unknown type of blade. The victim stated that there was no argument or disagreement between them before he was attacked, and the suspect then calmly walked away.
The victim had a large laceration but it seems to have missed the major arteries. The victim said he drove himself to the St. Joseph’s Hospital emergency room. The victim described his assailant as a white male who was “Italian looking,” about 5-foot-9, thin build with short dark hair. He was wearing a blue baseball hat, a black jacket with the letters “POW” on the back and blue jeans.
A Rural Metro ambulance drove the victim to Upstate University Hospital, where the emergency room staff determined that he had about a 6-inch stab wound in his neck. The victim underwent emergency surgery but his injury appeared to be non-life-threatening.
